The comics through Y2K glasses : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

From this morning's comic pages, which I usually read for a bit of escapism:

Peanuts (Final panel): Snoopy, lying on his back on top of his doghouse, thinks: "You try to warn them that the world has gone mad, but they won't listen..."

Mister Boffo: First panel: Guy sitting on a park bench, talking to his dog: "I talk to the wind... It tells me her name." Next panel: "I talk to the stars... They tell me her address." Next: "I talk to the night... It tells me her number." Last panel: He and his dog are walking in the moonlight, which casts a long shadow behind them. Caption: The end of directory assistance as we know it.

Last, but not least, Sally Forth: First panel: Daughter to Mother: "Mom, the TV just shut off." Mother: "So did the microwave." Next panel: Daughter: "The whole block is dark." Father, hanging up phone: "The power company said it'll be five hours." Next: Daughter: "Five hours?!" Father: "At the earliest." Next: Mother: "Well, there's only one thing we can do." Last panel: Daughter: "I'll rescue the ice cream from the freezer." Father: "I'll get the bowls and the hot fudge." Mother: "Nothing unites a family like a crisis."

How are they going to heat the fudge??

Fondue pot with tea light? Sterno? Lovely propane 2-burner camp stove? LOL

Boyoboy do great minds think alike, Snoopy's lament sure tied into Y2K for me, and I don't always read the 'funnies' but just happened to catch that one...wierd. I must now go back and read the others.

1600 Penn. Avenue, DC.

But I understand he is out of town again getting bribery (oops, champange (ooops, campain )) money from the liberals.

That is best chuckle I've had in along time. (he says while wiping tears from his eyes) Thanks, I needed that.

I have a suggestion to heat the fudge....They can call on all those like Koskiven (or whatever his name is on niteline) and all those who claim compliancy and let them BLOW ON THE FUDGE, I'm sure there will plenty of hot air to go around!!!???

Here is a golden nugget for Y2Kers with a sense of humor--

Uncle Deedah--

Your comment about Waldo reminded me of one of the funniest things I've seen in a while...........

Bart Simpson opened up a book and all there was on the page was a very plain background with one very large and colorful Waldo filling up the entire page.......

Bart complains....."Damn it, even Waldo's quit trying!"
